Description:
The Cyprus Red Cross Society is the Red Cross society in Cyprus. The Headquarters of the Society is located in Nicosia.

It originated with the establishment of a branch of the British Red Cross in 1952 which evolved into the Cyprus Red Cross after the independence of the Republic of Cyprus from the United Kingdom in 1960.Cyprus Red Cross is a properly constituted National Society, recognised as an auxiliary to the public authorities in the humanitarian field by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus, where the four Geneva Conventions are in force.Cyprus Red Cross is an autonomous body directed by its Central Committee, operating under the Cyprus Red Cross Law of 1967 and its own statutes and in conformity with the fundamental principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.The Society, whilst not recognised by the ICRC at the international level, co-operates with other components in the spirit of the statutes of the movement and identifies itself through the use of the Red Cross Emblem in conformity with the Geneva Conventions.

Cyprus Red Cross carries out a wide spectrum of activities, primarily based on volunteers from all segments of society, in response to vulnerabilities among people in Cyprus and abroad, ranging from alleviation of the hardships of those internally displaced as a result of the 1974 invasion, via day-to-day response to local disasters and social hardship, to public information about new and re-emerging threats to health.
